The Littlest Birds
Award Winning Banjo Player
The Littlest Birds hail high from the Rocky Mountains, with a sound as lonesome as the wind, and as sweet as spring flowers at dawn. Fronted by Wyoming's award-winning banjo player, Sharon Martinson, the duo's strong vocal harmonies complement their instrumental prowess, bringing song-crafting to life. Sharon is currently Wyoming's musical ambassador, winning the state's lone Performing Artist of the year award (Wyoming Arts Council), as well as being a founding member of the Banjo Babes (Calendar & Album), and 2nd place winner at FreshGrass Music Festival (MA).
Michael Kirkpatrick recently swept the hearts of Colorado, winning the Telluride troubadour competition, and as post-opera singer turned folk mandolin master, he is no stranger to festival stages all across the country.
Together, The Littlest Birds produced an album, Phoenix Rising, with the full band in 2018. Martinson's non-profit, Play It Forward, will be bringing their music for the next two years to under-served populations in soup kitchens, veteran's hospitals, prisons, schools and more. In 2020, the band plans to take the show oversees to perform in refugee camps around the world.
